I recently was diagnosed with HCV and about to start Harvoni. I also have HBV that is in remission. Im very concerned about side effects of the Harvoni, and, the HBV being reactivated.

It depends - your doctor will need to monitor you for this. However, if you are at risk, the risk is low. Talk to your doctor about this.

I had Hep b when I was 17. I am now 60 and have been diagnosed with Hep C and am beginning treatment with Harvoni. Will the Hep B reactivate?
